Anthocyanin-Based Polymeric Matrices that can Detect Shrimp’s FreshnessChemistry
- Alfred Santos
In 2021, 400 million megatons of shrimp were produced. The average American consumes 4 lbs. of shrimp annually. However, despite the large consumption, there are no available methods to test the freshness of the shrimp available to consumers. This research aimed to engineer a polymeric matrix that can detect shrimps’ freshness using anthocyanin collected from waste red cabbage and black rice soaked in water.
